Read Masque of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death, #1) Online Free - Everything is in ruins.
A devastating plague has decimated the population, and those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?
Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery makeup . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.
But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club, and Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.
And Araby may find not just something to live for, but something to fight for—no matter what it costs her.

Masque of the Red Death is oh so deliciously dark and twisty!
I adore dark, fantastical and overly dramatic stories. Who's with me? Let's go kick some flying monkeys, everyone! Kidding, kidding. Please guys, treat your flying monkeys with respect. Oz just wouldn't be as much fun without...

Masque of the Red Death has been my most anticipated book of the year since I discovered it last September. I was obviously first attracted to it by its cover, followed by its premise that talks of a gothic setting, a plague apocalypse, and a Debauchery club… need I say more?
As far as steampunk...

honestly? What the fuck did I just read? I'm 100% confused but I've never been so invested and eager to read on about something I don't fucking get. Idk everything seemed to jump from scene to scene without any explanation and I just liked it. There's shitty romance and characters, but the plot's...

Masque of the Red Death took a lot of risks. Firstly, it was based on Poe’s title of the same name. And as everyone knows, generally you just don’t go messing with Poe.
All I’m saying is that shortly before this was taken, that skeleton was alive and very apologetic, but ultimately doomed.

In Bethany Griffin’s gripping novel (which shares its title with Poe’s story) we are swept into the inner-workings of a bleak r...

I was the first person ever to breathe through a mask.
Imagine living in a world where the most important thing you need to survive is also the very same thing that could take your life.
"I need some fresh air."
"Then by all means, go outside. If it doesn't clear your head, it will probably ki...
